And he is going to need that power when aliens (appropriately disguised as sugary junk food) come to take over the earth under command of their leader Blubberman.

" Rating: N/A Captain Novolin is a so-called edutainment game which teaches kids about diabetes and, maybe, a big fat maybe, let them know that even superheroes can get them and that they're not alone in the world. Sorry, that's just me snowballing things. The titular hero is a type 1 diabetic superhero who is probably the worst of all superheroes. Hell, he doesn't even meet the basic requirements of one. The only ability he has is hopping. That's right, not jumping, not TMNT-style parkour, but "

"Release Date: November 1992 (NA) Publisher: Raya Systems Developer: Sculptured Software Genre: Platformer Ever want to play as a character that dies if he collects too many items on the screen? Ever want to give that same character shots of insulin between stages? Ever want to take dieting tips from an overweight doctor? If you said yes to all of those questions, then you, my friend, are one of the one people that might love this game. The game is a total mess from beginning to end with control"

Worst video games ever (in Finnish) (11 games items)

"Onko se lintu? Onko se Mr. Gay Finland? Ei! Se on Captain Novolin! Kapu Novolin on "supersankari", jonka omana kryptoniittina toimii sokeritauti eli diabetes. Z-luokan tasoloikassa kohdataan ruokaa (jota tulisi kerätä) ja vihollisia (roskaruoka tappaa kapteenin tavoin jok'ikisen sokeritautisen parista osumasta). Kokonaisuus on kasassa pysyvä, mutta kuitenkin horjuva kömpelöine ohjauksineen ja pienine tietoiskuineen. Varsinaisten tasojen välissä kaksi maahanmuuttajatohtoria ohjaavat sin"

"Captain Novolin Honorable Mention: Doctor Fatty McDoublechin You know what video games don’t need? A diabetes-based superhero. I mean honestly...If you pick up too many snacks during the course of a level, you die from your blood sugar level being too high. Yes, this lame-o can’t handle it if you pick up every snack in the level. On top of that, he goes out of his way to shove it in Ranger Ralph’s face that he has diabetes during the course of the game. Who’s Ranger Ralph? Who cares.."

"Beat February 15, 2011 I dislike this game greatly. I have a bit of a sweet tooth, so I'm fairly sure that I'll get diabetes as I grow older...But even when that time comes, I won't want to play a video game to remind me of it. Captain Novolin is a game made not for fun, but for the purpose of teaching children about diabetes...Needless to say, it's terrible. Thankfully, the game is pretty short so the pain I suffered through for screenshots didn't last too awful long."

Worst Games of All Time (27 games items)

"First off, this is a game about diabetes. And from the looks of it, it was put together not to educate children about diabetes, but to blatantly taunt their disease. It's the story of aliens coming to Earth and taking the form of sugary diabetes-promoting snacks who can only be stopped by Captain Novolin, a diabetic hero. And of course, you'd probably have been a lot happier if you'd never known that. Gameplay Video: Since diabetic scientists haven't developed a raygun capable of defeating sn"
